This lucky guy hit the Kentucky Derby 'superfecta' and landed himself $75,000 off of a $1 bet!!!
The one dollar payout for picking the first four finishing horses in this year’s Derby was a cool $75,974.50. Throwing two bucks down on the exacta (top 2 horses) would have netted you $336.20, while putting a buck down on the trifecta (top 3 horses) would have fattened your wallet by $8,297.20.
The only downside to this guy's luck (if you want to call it a downside), is that the superfect jackpots in the past have been wayyyyy bigger.
The Marion Star states:
Trifectas with four-figure payouts were the norm for seven of the last 10 races. The 2009 superfecta paid $557,000. The next year it was $202,000. From 2007 to 2014, the lightest super was $15,383.
Still, $75K (even after taxes) is a damn nice return off of a $1 bet. Can I borrow some money???
BONUS: A fight broke out between two dudes dressed in silly clothes and ended ubruptly with one punch...
